What We Are Eating W/C 12th August 2017

I'm such an idiot.

I forgot last week that Top Ender and Flyfour were going camping during the week and so some of the meals that I had organised were too much for Dan Jon Jr and I alone! So we kind of rescheduled a few meals and ate scraps of bits and pieces that we had in the freezer and cupboards, made other meals from the bits and pieces I had remembered to buy and well Dan Jon and I may have accidentally fallen into a couple of supermarkets to buy supplies for meals that we like, whilst Flyfour and Top Ender were away.

Luckily the boy has cheap tastes and so we were well fed and happy!

Saturday - Sausage and Mash



When Dan Jon and I were wandering around the Supermarket we had worked out all the meals we were going to eat. However, when we got back home we couldn't remember what we had planned for Saturday night. We were really confused and I took it to be a testament to making a meal plan and shopping list BEFORE you go shopping.

In the end however, I remembered that we decided to go with Sausages and Mash.

Sunday - Slow Cooker Honey Pork and Apples


Flyfour and Top Ender should be coming back from their camping trip today and as Dan Jon and I will be at Church, we wanted to have something cooking for when we got home and for when Flyfour and Top Ender eventually get home too!

I'll leave a pan of new potatoes on the hob, so that everyone can serve themselves when they are eating!

Monday - Leftover Fish Pie


When we had fish pie last week, I made such a big one that I ended up freezing half of it because despite Flyfour having two helpings there was a tonne left. I figured we'd have it tonight with plenty of peas as our side dish, which Dan Jon and I are going to shell!

Tuesday - Toad in the Hole


When Dan Jon and I were working out what we would eat this week we decided that Toad in the Hole is one of our favourite dishes and we don't have it enough. this is generally because Flyfour makes it because of the gluten free batter, but I'm going to attempt it today!

Wednesday - Pasta and Sauce


Nice and simple.

Hopefully.

Thursday - Something From The Freezer


We're having something from the freezer, I'm not sure what because there isn't much in there apart from frozen vegetables and ice cream and I'm not sure that makes a good meal... In fact I'm pretty sure it makes an awesome meal but we shouldn't eat it because that would make me a bad parent!

Friday - Fish and Chips


I'm going to wait until Flyfour is home so he can help me with the Battering of the Haddock fillets because whenever I do it the batter seems to slide off.

So, that's what we're eating this week. How about you?
